I’m happy to present the pilot episode of an upcoming weekly MAKE video called This Week in Hobby Robotics, a roundup of interesting things happening in the world of — what else — hobby robotics. It’s hosted by Frits Lyneborg and Rik (no last name, please). Frits (from Denmark), who works professionally in web concept development, is the creator of Letsmakerobots.com, a very popular international source for hobby roboticists. His cohost Rik (from Holland) is part of the team that runs Letsmakerobots.com and assists its online community. Rik says he gets friendly mocking from his friends for not making more robots, but shrugs it off. Some day he will make a robot to do the shrugging. Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the launch of this new series.
